Default London St Pancras to Bedford

Perhaps a ticket mentioning "Thameslink" is valid only on the
Thameslink service?

We've been though that. The price is the same [at Bedford] for
"London Terminals", so the potential route-excess is zero.

And it's neither a "Thameslink only" nor a "Not EMR" ticket.

*However* as a bonus, on Thameslink services you can use the ticket
as far as LondonBridge/Elephant&Castle, not only to SPILL.

Thanks that's how I viewed it so was surprised when the gate
rejected my ticket and told me to seek assistance and the attitude
of the person who opened the gate for me.

Now that we know it's one of the weekend-only tickets, it's entirely
possible the gates won't accept them. But then you'd think the staff
would be used to letting people through manually.

Maybe he was just fed up with the number of people requiring exit

The OP was requiring entry assistance.

Annoyed with whoever programmed the gates rather then the users.
